NBA Playoffs: Sixers Blown Out By Heat 94-73

There’s really not a whole to say about this game from a Sixers’ perspective. There was no shocking run in the first quarter to catch the Heat sleeping, no fourth quarter fightback… they just got worked tonight by a Heat team that looked a lot more focused than it did in game one.

Lebron James scored 29 as the Heat won 94-73 to take a commanding 2-0 series lead in the best of seven.

The Sixers were really blown away from the start with a first half performance reminiscent of Butler in the NCAA title game. They managed just 31 first half points. Andre Iguodala was 2-8, Elton Brand was 1-5… In fact the Sixers starting lineup shot just 11 for 35. All told, the starters contributed 29 points.

The only offense came from the bench in the form of Thaddeus Young who led them with 18 (on 8-20 shooting) and rookie Evan Turner who was the second leading scorer with 15 points.

The Sixers simply never looked like they were in this game. They’ll look to save some face and try to get back in this series on Thursday as it shifts to Philadelphia for game three.
